Post your Pedigree

This page lists the Ancestral Lines of everyone currently researching their Farrell / Ferrell ancestry. It is intended for use by absolutely anyone including those who have taken a Y-DNA test, a mitochondrial DNA test, an autosomal DNA test (i.e. Family Finder), or no DNA test. If you later take a DNA test, you can add this as a "Reply" to your original "Comment".

Each pedigree goes back to the earliest known Farrell ancestor in the researcher's family tree. This may either be a Farrell Patriarch or a Farrell Matriarch. This information will help collaboration between the different Farrell researchers. If you wish to contact any of the researchers below, simply post a "Reply" to their original "Comment".

If you wish to include your own Farrell / Ferrell pedigree, simply leave the details as a Comment below. Alternatively, email it to me at mauricegleeson AT Please use the following format:

2) Mortimer FARRELL b 1861 etc ... (birth, death, marriage details)
3) Abigail FARRELL b 1890 ... (as above)

The following are recommended:
  • birth location is more important than birth date
  • if unsure about a piece of information, put a question mark in front of it
  • no birth dates should be included if less than 100 years ago
  • no marriage dates if less than 75 years ago
  • no death dates if less then 50 years ago
  • for privacy & security, no living people should be included (use initials if preferred, or omit completely)
  • for privacy & security, only the last 4 digits of your kit number should be included
  • as this is a public forum, email addresses should have the @ sign removed and replaced with AT (this helps reduce the risk of spam)

    1. Mathew Farrell, born in Ireland (don’t know where) in 1825. He married an unknown woman and had two children, Thomas 1845 and Bridget 1846. The mom died at some point. Mathew immigrated to New York in 1847-48, possibly with brothers (John and James?). A caretaker named Mary Doyle 1830 brought the children to New York in 1850-51. Mathew and Mary were married shortly after and had 5 more children, three who lived to have large families. He died in 1870 in Buffalo, NY.

      Captain John P. Farrell (Jackie) was born in Buffalo in 1864. He married Anna O’Connor in 1888. They had 6 children that lived to adulthood. John J 1891, Edna, 1893, Thomas 1895, Wilbert, 1897, Mary 1903 and Berchman 1906. Jackie Farrell died in 1940. He had 4 paternal heirs that lived to adulthood, all of whom had sons.

      Captain Berchman Farrell was born in Buffalo in 1906. He married Veronica Fitzgerald in 1939 in Fulton, NY, but they quickly moved back to Buffalo. They had 4 children, Sheila 1940, Michael, 1941, Kathleen, 1943, and Sharon 1951. Berchie Farrell died in 1977. Berchman had only 1 paternal heir.

      Captain Michael D. Farrell was born in 1941. He married Janice Schulz in 1962 and had 4 children, Nancy (me), Lisa, Michael Jr. and Carrie. He is still living and has 1 son who is a paternal heir. That son has 3 more sons.

      I have recently sent in an DNA test for myself and have talked my brother into doing the same. I have heard that a different test might be better for a paternal heir and I am looking into this.

      I would love to learn the origins of Mathew and Mary. They had to come from the same place!

      Sincerely...Nancy Farrell Wellenzohn

    1. Hi Steven,

      I am descended through Richard Moore Farrell's daughter Emma who married George Keys and their daughter Beatrice who married my grandfather Alexander Poe.

      Do you happen to have details of Richard's gravesite (I assume it's in Paramatta but can't find it) or his father's ancestry?

      Many thanks,

      Leon Lyell

  26. Good Day All,

    My name is Andre and I bear the surname "Ferrell". I state bear as I do not know how I received this surname. I am an black man whose family hails from Loudoun County, Virginia. My earliest known ancestor, Joseph Ferrill, was recorded in the 1820 US Census and was noted in records as a free person of color. I joined this group to see if I am related to European Ferrills of Ireland. DNA does show relationship to the British Isles so I am curious. I do not know if Joseph Ferrill was born Ferrill or if he was at some point enslaved and earned his freedom and assumed the surname. Here is my pedigree starting from Joseph to my grandfather, Kenneth. If any of this information is familiar, please feel free to contact me. Thank you.

    1. Many thanks Andre - hopefully you will get some clues as to Joseph Ferrill's origins in due course. Also, there may be more descendants of Joseph who will test and join the project, so hopefully a new genetic family will be created for you and your close matches in the not too distant future.

    2. Maurice, just so you're aware in case it helps - some of my kits are autosomal matches to Andre. My earliest branches of Ferrell's that I can trace were born in VA though I don't know where. I suspect that my Ferrells might be linked to Andre's though. Unfortunately my Ferrell line was a maternal one so I don't have any relatives with Ferrell YDNA though.

    3. Thanks for that information, Adam. I see from Tommie's results that there is a nice 24cM chunk of DNA shared on Christmas 7, with a total DNA shared of 29cM ... making you probably 4th cousins or thereabouts. To help confirm it is on your Ferrel line, it would be useful to test other descendants of ?Roger Ferrel (as distantly related as possible). Andre could do the same. I used this technique to break through a Brick Wall on my Morgan line and discovered I was related to Princess Diana! ...

  29. Hello, my Dad was born to Stoe Farrell and Maude Norton perhaps in Gregg Co, Texas around 1914. His birth name was Willie Marion Farrell but at the age of around 15 months, his mother, Maude, gave him away to an unknown person. He ended up in McComb, Mississippi and was adopted by a family with the last name of Shea. He was then named Raymond Aloyisus Shea. He died in 2008 in Doyline, Louisiana and is buried in the cemetery there. He died never knowing his actual birthdate, birthdate, birth parents or family. He hired an attorney in the early 1970’s to try and find the answers to these unknown burning questions.
    Through Ancestry, I have discovered his birth family....James Monroe Farrell and his wife, Mary Ann Baker were married and in 1891, Mary gave birth to the last of several children, my grandfather, Stoe Farrell, in Bienville, Louisiana.
    I have many, many cousins and2 Uncles and 2 Aunts who are the only siblings of Dad who are still alive.
    Can anyone help me find my Dad’s birth mother, Maude Norton Farrell and/or where my grandmother, Mary Jane Baker Farrell, is buried?
    Thank you.
